We are heartbroken to hear of Renee's passing. She was a wonderful friend who will be deeply missed. Her big heart, tender spirit and loving smile were only surpassed by the way she lived her life with grace and dignity. She will be deeply missed.

Sending our most sincere condolences... Very saddened to hear of Renee's passing. So many fond memories of her. We met & socialized with Renee when she lived a few houses away from us here in Cary NC. We were just getting started setting up our household, and from Renee we learned so much about decorating, hosting, and Wine (especially Chateau Ste Michelle where Renee had once worked)! She was so kind and caring. Later Renee moved to Myrtle Beach and we visited her & Michael every time we were in town. In more recent years we visited Renee & Terry and we were so glad they had found each other! May she rest in peace. There's a special place in heaven for people like Renee.

To Terry, Michael and extended family,

Our heartfelt condolences on Renee's passing. We were shocked and devastated when we heard the news. Unfortunately, we had fallen out of touch over the course of the past couple of years, and we did not know that she was so very ill.

Renee had such a warm and bright spirit; she always livened up every social gathering that we attended with her. She truly was such an amazing woman. She will be missed beyond words. Our hearts go out to you all.
